Through a beneficial relationship with the local Rabari herdsmen, the camp has successfully created a low-impact eco-tourism experience, where days are spent on outdoor adventures and evenings are spent under the stars around a boma fire. The vibrant Rabari herdsmen who have shared this landscape with wildlife for centuries signify the organic and continuing link between local culture and wildlife, a relationship SUJÁN is deeply committed to nurturing.
JAWAI is a part of SUJÁN Luxury, a collection of family-owned luxurious hotels that offer unique destination experiences which are true to where they are located. Each of these intimate, exclusive hotels are socially and environmentally responsible while offering impeccable, understated service and luxury.
JAWAI’s location, the unique flavor of this land and its offerings provide for an entirely different experience from the rest of Rajasthan, an area of completely breathtaking surroundings. Nearby is the renown Kumbalgarh Fort, now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The camp lies equidistant between Udaipur and Jodhpur. There are regular flights daily into both cities, then a three hour drive from both cities.
Created in a timeless flourish with canvas, stainless steel and leather accoutrements, each of the 10 tents at JAWAI is abutted by a private deck that looks upon unobstructed, spectacular views of the dramatic wilderness around. The use of local stone brings an understated, elegant and light feeling to the camp. The celebrated artisan, Michael Aram’s charming collection of decorative artifacts; hand-crafted using age-old traditions of Indian workmanship complete the winsome furnishings. JAWAI offers nine Luxury Tented Suites and one larger Family Suite/ Honeymoon Suite.
At JAWAI, guests can enjoy access to sites of their choice for private dining. Breakfasts in the bush and picnics in the wild, luncheons by lakes and embracing dinners, ensconced by granite hills under constellations of an unending sky provide unlimited dining options for guests. Meals are created using organically-grown produce from the Kitchen Garden.
The Spa at JAWAI features dramatic views and an idyllic location, the perfect spot to unwind, relax and heal. Guests can choose from a diverse menu of therapies, or custom therapies can be created based on specific needs.
